A Spring of Dreams – Lantern

Lantern

Old light from the past
Is still illumination
Wisdom echoes far

A Dangerous Rebellion

Four people, four rebels. Rejecting society or rejected by it – either way they have had enough. They have decided to fight – and they have taken on the government on its most dangerous and brutal front.

Will they survive?

And have they thought about what comes next?

Or why they are fighting?

Will their convictions be a match for the crimes they will have to commit and the guilt that comes with them?

Straight Path

By Scott Bailey © 2015

The Romans had it right
With their roads
Our roads wander
And wind
Avoiding stuff
Drawing closer to other stuff
But it’s all just stuff
We get lost
Never arrive
Or if we do
Too late
Too late

Chains

By Scott Bailey © 2015

 

Chains are other people
Cages social mores
Throw them to the floor
Bend bars
Soar

Dark Path

By Scott Bailey © 2015

(Musette Poem)

Sadness
Never ending
Madness

Will we
Learn to tread light
Greed free

Burning
Dreams leaving us
Yearning
